After 17 years a garden centre and cafe is aiming to bloom as it opens a second store – creating more than 15 jobs.

Urban Jungle, which is based in Ringland Lane, Costessey, opened a new branch in Weston, near Beccles, on Saturday as it crossed the county border for the first time.

The tropical plant nursery has also opened a second Café Jungle at the London Road site, which will serve organic food with all the vegetables grown on site.

There have been 15 staff hired as part of the expansion and Urban Jungle said more jobs are in the pipeline.

Owner Liz Browne, who founded the firm in 2001, said: 'Business has boomed in the last few years and I put this down to the sheer hard work and determination of our team, their passion for plants, and great advice to customers so they buy the right plants for their gardens.'
